Rented Government ‘Protesters’ Queue For Payment After Pro-fuel Subsidy Rally

 
A rented pro-fuel subsidy crowd laid siege on Labour House in Abuja yesterday to pressurize the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) to accept the removal of the subsidy.

They then promptly queued up and collected their 1000 Naira “performance” allowance per head from the Federal Government agents that recruited them in front of bemused NLC officials.


 

A majority of the members were illiterate local Gbagyi women and unemployed youths recruited from villages surrounding the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). Their leader, one Isah Mohammed, could not offer a convincing explanation to NLC officials about their mission, and most of the people following him did not really know why they were recruited.

I mean seriously, these women aren't even educated so who do these brain-dead twats (the people that recruited them) think they are fooling?
THE MASSES ARE CONSTANTLY BEING EXPLOITED! SHAME!!!!
they were probably just told to stand somewhere and hold signs and they will receive 1000 Naira. why must they bribe people to garner fake support? SMDH.

Is the Nigerian Government so desperate that they had to hire people to pretend that they are in support of them. That shows the kind of Government we have.Well, on the part of the protesters, thats what poverty and illiteracy can cause.

Ayo said...

Hahahaha hehehehe hohohoho huhuhuhu laughing in all the Nigerian languages! see the yeye people one is fighting for, going behind to collect bribe, actually they are not going behind, they are doing it in the full glare of those trying to protect and defend their rights. Shiiiooooooo!!!! The evil genius was right when he said "everyman(me thinks he meant every Nigerian)has a price and if the said man is not playing ball, then you have not paid the right price". Never thought I'd see the day that I would agree with that evil man, unfortunately that day is today.

they do not understand what removing this fuel subsidy at this time means.......when prices of things would tripple 5 times........

most of them will become prostitutes to survive.........

the truth is......anybody who makes less than N150,000 a month should be prepared for hell fire

Do those idiot women know that they are the ones with the most to loose? Do they understand that its their children that will start to die from hunger first? Do they understand that we fight for not only them but ourselves? Somebody needs to educate them!

If this is the kind of strategy that our leaders are taking then Nigeria is finished... The person that came up with this idea is just as stupid as the protesters.

"I have read with acatalectic disgust,
governments asinine and puerile
ratiocinations attempting to justiceate
the proposed removal of subsidies
from petroleum products. It has
asseverated that it’s intentions is
guided by the need to checkmate the
odoriferous excesses of a
machiavellian and mephistophelean
cabal and i have said to myself, what a
shame? What a self indicting admittal
of the failure of governance? What
anhocus-pocus? What an
anathematous disdain for it’s citizenry?
Must the people now bear the brunt
for governments ineptitude,
inefficiency and pusillanimity in
squaring up with these economic
philistines and fat cows? I feel even
more nauseated and vexed that the
Governors Forum has posthaste
conferred an apocalyptic imprimatur
on this genie. Let’s not forget that
majority of these same Governors had
earlier called for this state of affairs as
a condition sinequanon for paying the
minimum wage. What an opprobrium?
What a deprecable descent from the
sublime to the ridiculous? It’s up to us
all to put this Presidential and
Gubernatorial genie back into the
bottle but are we prepared?

If the caption on the picture is true then I wonder:

Various actions ranging from this to the jos killings *cant get over the image of little children burnt to death*last year and the adamawa and gombe killings this year makes me wonder where that 'tipping point' is really for us to say ITS ENOUGH AND KEEP SAYING IT TILL OUR VOICES ARE HEARD AND THINGS RADICALLY CHANGE.

Nigeria for now, is "too" insecure for people to be going around carelessly. While we are protesting and they are supporting the removal of fuel subsidy, we all should not forget that the Boko Haram sect has still not being caught. http://abubaka.wordpress.com

hi Linda, I read your blog everyday but I have never made a comment until now... I think you need to look at the removal of the fuel subsidy from a different perspective... this might enable you understand the rationale behind the removal... please send me your email address so I can forward some comments to you in relation to the issue of subsidy...it might not change your mind but it might be edifying... you can post your email address on your home page or just leave it as a comment

i am not sure what all the fuss about this fuel subsidy is about- even with the 110% or so price increase, fuel is still far cheaper in Nigeria than it is in the US or UK; Nigerians will learn to live with it and the country shall rise again as an economic powerhouse

OMG.Lmao.

Deltagirl said...

WOW,this is exactly what I was discussing with my mum just when this protest started, and it sure did happen...the government paying people to go against this movement. Nigerian Government never ceases to disappoint us. Shame on them, and they all have a special place prepared for them in hell.

@January 7, 2012 9:27 PM my blood boils and i get very angry when people compare nigeria with uk and us and you must be very stupid and an illterate for doing the comparison. may be you don't know that you can not compare the standard of living in the uk and us with nigeria. they are developed countries where everything works and i mean good roads hospital 24 hours light and so on.

next time you open that your yeye mouth make sure you do your comparison well as nothing is working in nigeria got it useless thing!!!

9jayouth said...

it is clear from the comments that a lot of Nigerians have no clue what a subsidy is. Please get educated and listen to the reason for it before you start protesting and rallying. Economically it makes sense; but given the current state of Nigeria and the fact that our government if corrupt, this is neither the time nor the way to implement this removal. To learn more of the reason behind this subsidy please watch this video.
